"/nbc/marist. governor romney, 44%. in wisconsin, president obama at 49%. in new hampshire, president obama at 49%, governor romney at 47%. so the good news is that's a lead for president obama, from the democratic are perspective. the bad news is he's been dropping. in iowa, that lead was eight points, now it's six. in wisconsin, that lead is now three points, it was six. new hampshire, it was a seven-point lead, it's now two. so if you actually map it, it's shrinking very dramatically five days left until the election. are you worried about that trend? you must be. >> not at all. not at all. we had always anticipated that there would be a very, very close race. but i think, basically, what it's going to boil down to is who do we trust. and i think the polling will show that the american people trust this president. i think when you've got a situation where the president is either basically tired or leading in all of these battleground states, you've got, just the eyes will tell you that some of them are going to come out in his favor, if not all. but i think the president clearly, you've got to

's interesting with president obama and new jersey governor chris christie looking at storm damage later on today. that is one of mitt romney's top surrogates and so sort of fighting fire with fire in terms of surrogates, mitt romney on the campaign trail all day long with jeb bush and marco rubio, and i talked to a top romney adviser about whether or not the gop noom nominee is concerned or trouble with the president out with chris christie. one word from the romney campaign and that's none. speaking of mitt romney, it looks like he's coming out on stage now so i'll throw it back to. >> he is walking up on the stage right now, waving to the crowd, jim. let's listen in as the governor takes to the podium and listen to how the tone may have changed as jim acosta was reporting. perhaps no negative attacks in that respect and governor bush did suggest as jim acosta just said that state and local response to this disaster is what really matters. let's see if the governor has anything further to add to that or if he talks at all about this disaster that we have been covering. obviously, that is very p
? >> unfortunately not. but last night after midnight i talked to president obama, i talked to governor christie, been talking to numerous people here on the ground, who are in charge of that. everybody knows the urgency. everybody knows, especially when you have dense populations, and a lot of people are really reliant for medical reasons on power, that you get a sense of urgency to get this done. i don't have any more specific updates. i just do know that everybody from the federal, state, local level, that's one of the major missions today. secondary obviously to keeping everybody immediately safe. because there are many, many hazards in the streets. many downed power lines. so many flooded areas, and people still principally important and we're asking people to stay home. to stay out of the way so power crews, emergency responders, and others can get their work done. >> let me ask you a quick question before i let you go. we're looking at pictures from yesterday in atlantic city where the 234r50ding was very bad. what happens to election day? you know it's a week from today. you may not have

the differences between president obama and former governor romney. >> mayor reed, to professor peterson's point, you need compassion, yes, but you also need funding, and you need fema, and you need support. now, i wonder, sir, if you would just listen to mr. romney's discourse here on federal disaster management. take a listen, sir. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case by case basis and some people who say maybe we're learning a lesson here that the states should take on more of this role. >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> mayor reed, everyone acknowledges the role and importance of the private sector. as mayor of a major city, you do. with all due respect to mr. romney, if the private sector was to great at disaster response, why aren't they doing it already? the whole point of having government is to take the role that the private sec
can do that with his track record as governor in massachusetts. president obama has not done that while he has been president. he did not have a resume going in as president so we really need a change in washington. host: are independent line, what do you think? caller: i do not think either one of them is a winner. going back the last six months, whoever gets elected, 47% of the population is not going to like him. it is going to be the same thing. it is going to be gridlock from now on because there is so much hate and madness. host: how do you get beyond it? caller: if we had the answer to that question, me and you could go get elected. i hate to say it but here we are. we are not going to get past the it. we are just going to suffer through it and keep on. it was the same thing it was yesterday. it was this way 100 years ago. go back and read history. host: that said, has it been successful to have this partisan conflict for this country? caller: is an formative. as long as people are educating themselves. you hear a lot of rhetoric from people. it i don't have to tell yo

on all day long. president obama will travel there tomorrow to vut damage along with new jersey governor chris christie. the governor surprised many people today when he called the president and i quote outstanding and incredibly supportive. words he probably wouldn't have used at the heart of an election battle last week. governor chris christie joins me from the state emergency command center. governor, thank you for joining me. i watched these extraordinary scenes over new jersey today. really quite unprecedented. i've never seen anything quite like it. have you ever seen anything like this in your lifetime? >> no, i haven't. in fact, piers, today i toured the jersey coastline both by helicopter, and i landed in two spots on the jersey shore. and i can tell you that i have never seen devastation like this in my life. not here in new jersey. you see sights like the seaside heights boardwalk, where the program "the jersey shore" is filmed, the boardwalk is gone. it is gone. amusement rides, a roller coaster, a log flume, in the ocean. it's incredible. homes destroyed. it's an awful thin
between governor christie and barack obama is exactly how our government should work all of the time. i couldn't agree more. it's been a massive breath of fresh air to see a republican leader like chris christie so prepared to be openly praiseworthy of a democrat president. what did you think? >> well, they are on the front lines of this crisis, the emergency workers reach out to residents, i've seen cooperation between port authority police, my fire department. nobody stops and asks you what your religion is, nobody stops and asks you what your political party affiliation is. folks are just rolling up their sleeves, getting to work. so what you're seeing in the field, what you're seeing with residents, with emergency responders, is what we should be seeing with all our elected leaders as well. the president of the united states, our governor and really, dozens of local elected leaders of all parties across the state, we're all pulling together. we're all in the same foxhole, all fighting the same enemy here. it's not refreshing, frankly, that's the standard that built america in the pa

jersey. >> reporter: christie wasn't the only gop governor in sandy's path to hear from obama. pennsylvania and virginia were also on a presidential call on tuesday. >> dana joins me now. you said in your piece, the president will be with governor christie tomorrow in new jersey. we'll be covering that closely there is some politicking going on underneath the radar, isn't there? >> there is, of course. no surprise. this case, it's democrats really pushing the story that romney would slash federal disaster relief. even get rid much fema, and based on a debate last year. and he said that the federal role should be limited and romney was asked multiple times today to clarify the position on fema he didn't answer. afterward, romney's campaign insists he would eliminate fema, that may be true, but the plan to reduce the deficit would include cutting spending, and that would likely include fema. and paul ryan released his budget last year, which caused for a 35% cut to fema. >> we'll see if he talks about that tomorrow on the campaign trail. dana bash, appreciate it. we'll be right
